Fourteen NBA players are teaming up with Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, and more to record a compilation album entitled "Full Court Press Vol. 1".
Hip hop and basketball have long since been synonymous with rappers dropping ball-related lyrics in their tracks for years.Â Â A veritable number of NBA players have even tried their hand at the rap game, with varying degrees of success (andÂ failure).Â
A video was recently released chronicling the making of the most grandiose NBA/rap collaboration effortÂ of all-time.Â From SLAMonline, aÂ whopping fourteen NBA players have signed onto Full Court Press Vol. 1, which will also feature a slew of hip hopÂ talent with not only big names in the league, but some big names in the rap game.Â
With a tentative release date of All Star Weekend 2013, the ballers on the record include Baron Davis, Josh Smith, Carlos Boozer, Shawn Marion, veteran Juwan Howard, and more.Â Proceeds from sales will go to children in the community looking earn an education in the music business.Â
